I have fond memories of first happening upon our next Small Business brand, Cabin + Cub. Starting with the name of course, and then all the wonderful things designer, Valerie Thai has made since we’ve known of her work so many moons already. Founded in 2006, Cabin + Cub makes adorable modern laser cut wood pieces from earrings to cufflinks, and gift items like calendars and wall hangings. Let’s take a look!
Jan founded Poppytalk in 2005 while a student at Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design (now ECU) to catalogue inspiration from typography to interior design. Since then she’s collaborated with Target (creating a limited edition glamping collection), a wallpaper collection with Milton & King, as well has written as a contributor at Wired, Martha Stewart and Huffington Post.
